2019 Election Results: When Nigeria Needs A Jonathan

2019 Election Results: When Nigeria Needs A Jonathan

🕔07:01, 27.Feb 2019

The outright rejection of the results of the 2019 national election by the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), even before the final votes were counted, is very discouraging.

In fact, the beautiful weather conditions were so sanctimonious to the point that we (children) thought it was a Christmas day, and that of course, put a smile or two on our faces. Not only that the weather conditions put smiles on our faces, it also gave enviable ambience to all the decorations along the road, making them sparkle like diamonds.
